Throughout the world, women and children are raped and abused by the powers that be.

The cover of TIME magazine this week reveals the inner workings and insanity of the Taliban when women “step out of line” to flee abuse.

Tammy’s article, and the embedded talk at TED by Isabelle Allende, is worth a read and a listen.

An Idea Comes of Age in My Own Head I’m in the Pacific Northwest today where I planned to blog about vacation pleasure like hunting for agates and arrowheads, learning to pick nettles and digging for clams. But I can’t get that image out of my head. The open cavity where her nose once was haunts me. If you’ve seen it, you know what I’m talking about because it’s likely that you can’t forget it either.

Joy

Embrace all with joy.  Relinquish all with joy.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Happiness flows from being true to yourself.

Stir up the gift of God which is in thee. ~ 2 Timothy 1:5

You have not lived a perfect day unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you. – Ruth Smeltzer

The more you focus on viewing others with love, kindness, compassion, and acceptance, the more your view and God’s view will merge.

Joy is never in things, it is in us.  ~ Contemporary Lexicon

Success in life is more than racking up dollars in your bank account . . . it’s about being the best YOU that YOU can be.  

Joy is sharing the best parts of yourself with the world.

What is in you . . . let it out:

Emily Bear plays from the heart, sharing her joy with the world.

No matter how you say it . . . Celebrate it!
